The Spurs come into this battle after a 105-92 road loss as 5.5-point underdogs to the Cleveland Cavaliers Wednesday.

The Hawks rank eighth in points per game (111.9) and second in three-point field goal percentage (37.6%). That’s been their strength behind star G Trae Young. Atlanta is coming off a 133-112 win over the Dallas Mavericks Tuesday as its covered as a 12.5-point favorite.

Spurs at Hawks odds, lines, picks and predictions

Prediction

Hawks 119, Spurs 115

Money line

PASS.

The Hawks should come out on top, but they aren’t worth betting more than 4 times your potential return. They’ve also been playing better than the Spurs as of late, so the upset is not a great play either.

Against the spread

BET the SPURS +7.5 (-105).

The Spurs are 12-9 ATS as road underdogs and play much better than their record indicates. Only five teams have a worse SU record than San Antonio yet it ranks 17th out of 30 in net rating (the Hawks are 15th).

They’re a well-coached team and rarely turn the ball over, ranking second in turnover rate. The Hawks rank first in that stat.

The Spurs traded G Derrick White to the Boston Celtics Thursday which should give G Devin Vassell a chance to step into a starting role. That may actually improve their offense given Vassell’s strength as a shooter.

The Hawks are 11-14 ATS after a win, so there could be a hangover for the Atlanta side that helps keep this game close.

Over/Under

“LEAN” to the OVER 232.5 (-108).

These two teams don’t turn the ball over and they play at a chaotic pace.

The Spurs rank fifth in pace while the Hawks sit at 17. The Spurs rank 19th in opponents’ three-point field goal percentage which should bode well for Atlanta to cash in from deep.

Both teams have been better on the Over this season as well with the Spurs 27-26-2 O/U and the Hawks 29-25. The points should be in abundance on Friday with two star guards in action.
